“Location is the best thing about this hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

Hotel is walking distance to many sites.

The rooms are small but tidy. You have an Air conditioner unit and free WIFI. Rooms have shower only, safe and TV with a few English channels.

Staff is helpful, most speak good English.

Restaurant is on top floor with great views.

I would stay here again.

The location of the Seres is perfect for visiting the old city and for taking Bosphorus and Princes Islands cruises. The tram takes you everywhere. The hotel itself is on the modest side but staff are friendly.

A good breakfast on the terrace with a Bosphorous view, nice rooms, a very good lobby with nice tables, chairs and lights, just five minutes walk to Blue Mosque, Topkapı Museum, Hagia Sophia, Great Bazaar and Spice Bazaar (Kapalı Çarşı), Boat Tour in Eminönü / Galata Bridge by the sea, it is in the middle of everywhere... helpful and kind hotel personnel, and a very clean hotel... One of the best hotels in the area.

Seres hotel is a nice hotel if you don't expect extra's like spa's etc. Most important, nice rooms, good breakfast in the topfloor restaurant with a stunning view on the Bosporus. All the importnant things to see like the Blue Mosk, Hagia Sophia, the underground cisterns, the Great Bazar and Spice bazar and of course the Galata bridge are on walking distance. And even the tramstop is in front of the hotel. If you prefer a taxi, the lobby will call one for you. For 8 euro's they bring you to Taksim Square.
The hotelpersonell are very helpfull in finding your way in this great City.

Beuatiful and very nice hotel. Very clean. Nice atmosphere - a bit like fairytale. The hotel made breakfast for us at 5 in the morning. A very bit and good buffet - only for the us 8 guests. Had a beautiful view from my room. The restaurant in on top with a splendid view to all sides :)

This hotel is very centrally situated in Istanbul, within walking distance of the Spice Market, Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi palace, Justinian cisterns, and archaeology museum.
Our room was spacious and comfortable (but I understand that some rooms can be quite small). The roof-top restaurant has excellent views over the city. The food was average but OK. Friendly staff. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floor - and not facing towards the street.
